Description

We took classic flavors up a notch for this vegan caprese by adding sweet grilled peaches and a flavorful balsamic vinaigrette drizzle to fresh tomato and dairy-free mozzarella.


Scale

Ingredients

For the caprese salad:

  • 3 heirloom tomatoes, sliced into rounds
  • 3 ripe peaches 
  • Olive oil 
  • Vegan mozzarella-style cheese (we used this)
  • ¼ cup fresh basil leaves (torn or whole)
  • Pepper and flaky salt for garnish

For the balsamic vinaigrette:

  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp balsamic
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat grill to medium.
  2. Slice peaches into rounds. Do so by cutting along the center, then removing the pit. Be careful not to slice them too thin - otherwise they won’t hold up well on the grill. 
  3. Brush each peach round with a bit of olive oil. Grill for 3-4 minutes on each side. 
  4. Remove from heat and let cool slightly on a cutting board. 
  5. Whisk together all the ingredients for balsamic vinaigrette, or add to a jar and shake well.
  6. Arrange peaches, tomatoes and mozz on a platter, then drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette, top with a handful of fresh basil leaves and freshly cracked black pepper and flaky salt. 

Notes

This should be served right away - the peaches will start to get pretty soggy.
